Controlling Mom Freaks Out After Losing Access To Adult Daughter's Constant Location

As a parent, you never stop worrying about your children. They could be at school, at a party, at the doctor's office, across the world, even chilling upstairs in their bedroom, and there will always be a little part of you that wants to make sure that they're okay. Parents are meant to protect their children after all. But at some point, you need to loosen your grip a little bit. You don't have to throw them out the window like a little bird you nursed to health, but you do have to grant them partial freedom at some point to grow on their own.

Insecure Mother Refuses To Let Her Kids Speak English Because She Never Learned It

Most people would be thrilled to have their children speak multiple languages. Being multi-lingual has so many developmental benefits. Plus, the world is becoming more and more connected, so language is a great way to benefit from globalization. But sometimes, people are too selfish to actually let their children succeed, and would rather hold them back from certain experiences because they didn't have the same opportunities growing up. Sounds harsh, but that's showbiz.

Men Reveal Common Misconceptions About Their Gender

Both genders have their fair share of secrets. There are things about women that men will never understand and naturally, it works the same vice versa. Sometimes women like to say things like, 'Men are all the same,' or 'All men want is sex.' But it could be that we just don't understand them as well as we think we do.

The Most Unprofessional Things Doctors Actually Said To Their Patients

Most people don't love having to go to the doctor, but there are plenty of ways the experience can be made less stressful. Usually, a good doctor is super calming and makes the appointment not feel awkward at all, even if they have to put their finger in some ungodly places. A chill doctor will probably hit you with a couple of ice-breakers to loosen you up a bit, and they usually work. But sometimes, just like the rest of us, doctors go a little too far... and then it just gets weird.

On Reddit, people are sharing the most unprofessional things their doctors really said to them, and warning: You may experience some second-hand cringe.

Childfree Woman With Demanding Job Upset At Moms For Claiming Monopoly On Tiredness

We all have that one friend who just cannot stop 'sneak-bragging' about how overwhelmed they are, how they just barely have enough time to eat or sleep or exercise. Yet it seems as though they really make the time to tell you all of this, literally every single day.

Why is it always a competition of who is busier? I know this must be making you think of somebody.
